One of the most effective ways to strengthen your personal resilience is to explore your childhood wounds. For some people, life as an adult does not look, sound or feel satisfying. They often wonder why they and their lives are a painful mess. That was once true for me before I engaged in counseling and discovered that the root of some of my inappropriate adult behaviors stemmed from my upbringing.
Most of us have had our resiliency challenged when we feel resentment for hurtful behavior by others. Perhaps equally as painful is longing for others to forgive our transgressions. Then we are stuck. Those who are wise tell us that our emotional freedom rests in putting forgiveness into action–for ourselves and others! But how?
As friend, Brian Lee says, “Feedback is the breakfast of champions.” At least it is for those interested in continual learning, growth, and improvement. It is a key ingredient to minimizing mistakes, while aiding personal and professional development. The best feedback is given with the intention to help others do better, do more with more ease, or have a happier life.
